This week, Rodolfo Hernández will complete two months as Senator after a frustrated presidential campaign against Gustavo Petro, and by this Monday he has formalized the work team that will accompany him in his role as congressman.
“Starting the week with my Senate UTL, working with me to change the laws that allow thugs and politicians to do business and contract with the state, stealing money from all Colombians,” said the engineer from Santander. In contrast to his colleagues in Congress, he chose three advisers and a press secretary.

One of them is Jesús Rodrigo Fernández, director of UTL, who worked with Hernández in the Bucaramanga mayor’s office. Civil engineer, with more than four decades of professional experience. Among other things, he was Manager of Camacol, Manager of Banco Cafetero, business consultant in contracting for 20 years, President of the Santandereana Society of Engineers and member of the Board of Directors of the Colombian Society of Engineers.
There is also the lawyer Eenesto Matallana Camacho, doctor of law at the Externado University of Colombia and professor at the same university since 1998.
The same applies to the lawyer Iván Mauricio Pinzón Jiménez, graduate of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, specialist in substantive and controversial constitutional law of the same university and Master of Laws (LLM) from McGill University (Montreal, Canada).
Sneider Robles Olarte is the head of communications. Publicist at the University of Research and Development – UDI of Bucaramanga, Graphic Design Technologist at the same University and studies in Digital Marketing from IAB of Spain and The Open University.
For her part, Zaira Eugenia López Rey was appointed the engineer’s personal assistant. She comes from Piedecuestana, is a lawyer with extensive, ethical and humanistic training, from the Universidad Santo Tomás de Bucaramanga and specialist in administrative law from the Universidad Externado de Colombia.
With these appointments, Hernández confirmed that he was interested in the CVs of his advisors beyond political calculations. Recall that he praised his former vice presidential formula, Marelen Castillo, for his academic career and not for the votes he was able to add to it.
